Free Online Arthritis Workshop


The Arthritis Self-Management Program was Stanford’s first patient education program, and the prototype for all other self-management programs. People with different types of rheumatic diseases, such as osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, fibromyalgia, lupus, and others, attend workshops together and workshops are facilitated by two trained leaders, one or both of whom are non-health professionals with arthritis themselves.

cdsmp-logoWith support from the Centers for Disease Control, National Council on Aging (NCOA) is partnering with the Arthritis Foundation to offer the online workshop Better Choices, Better Health® Arthritis for free for a limited time. Over six weeks, from the convenience of their own computers, participants will learn strategies for reducing pain, decreasing activity limitations, and more and will receive a FREE workbook and online resources to help them live healthier!
